Our first public event took place on 25-26 September 2019, in Budapest, Hungary. The international conference under the title ‘Challenges and good practices of SMEs in V4 countries’ aimed to share information and knowledge about the issues which are the most pressing and the most inspiring for SMEs in the Visegrad countries nowadays. The event was also aiming at networking, participants discovered potential opportunities, initiatives and synergies related to SMEs and entrepreneurship throughout the V4 countries.

To do so, we were inviting experts and stakeholders, active in the field of entrepreneurship from Visegrad countries to get involved in interactive discussions. We have compiled a colourful program to launch dialogue on the numerous aspects of entrepreneurship and small businesses. The conference tackled different trends in Europe and in the Visegrad countries from circular economy, industry 4.0, through female entrepreneurship to start-ups. To make the event even more special, we used interactive methods (e.g. elevator pitch, pecha kucha presentations) and different digital tools.
